We’ve all indulged in a little public display of affection at some point, and PDA’s are a common sight all around the world. Especially when on a romantic retreat and your destination is so overwhelming it warrants a kiss!
And while there are destinations you should be wary of (ie United Arab Emirates), which frown upon public displays of affection, PDA’s are common in most cultures.
But remember not to become too carried away in the moment. You are, after-all in public, so save your lust for your hotel room and keep it cute! Stick to soft kisses, lingering hands and gentle touches – you don’t need to reach for each other’s tonsils or engage in heavy petting!
The following destinations lend themselves to amazing photo ops for public displays of affection, and it’s safe to say that these travelers make PDA’s look good!!

Korea is pretty anti-PDA, and since moving to Korea, I have felt really odd kissing my boyfriend in public, but it never felt as odd as when we were having a photo shoot at a Buddhist temple! I’m pretty sure kissing is considered a frowned upon behavior! Meagan LeAnne of Life Outside of Texas. Photo by Aaron Nicholas Photography.
Hawaii – the ultimate romantic destination!
